As Twitchy reported, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki held a much different view of securing leaked call transcripts and recordings during the Trump administration. But now Reuters has told us that a leaked transcript shows Joe Biden, who was in charge of sending military aid to Afghanistan, asking that country’s president for a favor: project the picture to the world that the fight against the Taliban is going better than it really is.
The Federalist’s Ben Domenech seems to remember another “perfect” phone call with a foreign leader that got a lot of attention.
Wow, the President of the United States had a call with a foreign leader where POTUS asked the leader to lie on his behalf, and promised military assistance if he did as he was told. Do I have that right?

Sounds about right, yeah.
That was four or five days ago, Ben.

I heard that used to be an impeachable offense?
— Hoogie (@Hoogalicious) September 1, 2021
Now based on precedent argued and established by the house that's an impeachable offence.

And promised money. Our money. Don't forget that part.

is this wrong?
— Christopher Owens (@CDO55) September 1, 2021
seems worse than Trump's call for sure…

Trump was impeached for far less.
— Roger Williams (@PIAccount1) September 1, 2021
Sounds damn near impeachable.

Perfect call right?

A perfect call, a beautiful call.

Biden to Ghani: Go out there and deliver some rosy lines of BS. It's easy! I do it all the time!
— ginny j. (@ncginny) September 1, 2021
And Ghani didn't
So Joe did
And now US troops & 100s of innocent civilians are dead.

Where's Adam Schiff to call for an investigation.

Don’t worry, nothing will come of it, and you’ll be called a conspiracy theorist for even suggesting it.

Ben, Ben, Ben…have you forgotten already how downright mean Trump's tweets were?

And this certainly isn’t the first time we’ve had a “Quid Pro Joe” moment — we have one on videotape.
‘What changed?’ Jen Psaki no longer a fan of discussing leaked transcripts of a president’s phone calls https://t.co/5nrdIxeI5L
